Monthly Meeting of
Alice Arm Citizens'
Association
Balance Sheet of the Anyox
Community League, December 31st, 1922
The regular monthly meeting of
the Alice Arm Citizens! Association
was held at the; Anglican Churoh
Building, ou Saturday February
24th. President C, P. Riel presided. Secretary T • W. Falconer
read the minutes of the previous
meeting and also the special
meeting of January 30th. After
some discussion regarding the
appointment of a wharfinger at the
government wharf, the minutes
were adopted as read.
A letter was read from Mr. F.
Stork, M. P. stating that he had
taken up the matter of .the Indian
Beserve ou his arrival at Ottawa,
and that he expected to get results
in the near future. A letter was
also received from Mr. Stork
regarding the building of a government float, and he explained that
the appropriation had not been
inoluded in last year's estimates,
but that it would no doubt be
included this year, aud,the float
built during the early summer.
Discussion ensued as to whether
the Association were expeoted to
pay freight on ore samples for the
B. C. Government Building in
Loudon, and it was deoided, to
table the matter until information
was obtained from Hon. Wm.
' Sloan, minister of mines.
The location of the proposed
Kitsault river bridge was brought
up, and i considerable discussion
ensued.. Owing to the fact that
Mr. J. A. Stephen, locating engineer had surveyed a site over half
a mile from town, it was the
general opinion that should the
bridge be built there, it would be
practically useless, and that the
bridge should be built closer to
town, if the people were to receive
any benefit from it.   (
A motion was made be 0. Fliut
seoonded by J. Eiva, that a committee be appointed to interview
' H, F. Kergin, M. L. A. regarding
his views on the matter, and also
J. A- Stephen with the idea of
ascertaining if it was not possible
to build the bridge closer to town.
The committee appointed consisted
of Messrs. C. P. Riel, A. Falconer,
0. Flint, G. Bruggy, H. Fowler,
E. Moss.
It was decided to hold a special
meeting the following evening to
receive the report of committee.
At the special meeting, C. P.
Riel, chairman of the committee,
stated that the committee
had interviewed Mr. H. F. Kergin
and that he had stated that whatever site was seleoted by the engineer would receive his support. Mr.
Stephen the locating engineer had
also been interviewed, and he had
stated that from an engineering
standpoint the upper site was best,
but that it was possible to build a
bridge at the wing dam. He had
not surveyed 'a site ou the flats
below the timber but would do so
the following morning.
A motion was made by H. Fowler, seoonded by G. Bruggy, that
the Department of Public Works
be communicated with, stating
that it was the wish of the people
of the .town that the bridge be
built as near the town as possible,
and not higher tip than the wing
dam. and also point out the great
necessity of constructing the bridge
as quickly as possible.
The balance sheet of the Anyox
Community League for the year
ending December 31st. 1922, is
certainly tine reading for the members of the League. Although
a large amount of money has been
expended during the year, in order
to ciater to the members, a profit of
over $1000.00 has been made, This
has only been made possible by the
Council handling all matters in a
business-like manner, and getting
a dollar's worth for every dollar
spent. The successful operation of
the Community League activities
for thh past year has also been due
to a large extent to the untiring
efforts of the Seoretary, Mr. F. M
Kelley, who has handled the affairs
of the League in a very creditable
manner.

Annual Meeting Anyox
Community League
Vote  of Confidence Passed
in Secretary
An audience numbering in the
neighbourhood of 300assembled'in
the Recreation Hall, on Wednesday
February 28th. The occasion
being semi-annual meeting of the
Anyox. Community, League. There
was a suspicion of mystery in the
atmosphere, arid as Mr. Simpson
said: An audience this size only
turn outwhen there is a scrap On,
Vice-president E. J. Conway who
was in the chair, wished to retire
before his term of office .was completed, 'which would be about a
week more. He was prevailed
upon to stay in the ohair, much to
the satisfaction of everyone.
The reading of the minutes,of
the last council meeting created
considerable discussion. Mr.
Armour taking exception to an
assertion that Mr. Brown former
Secretary of the League had been
boosted out. Mr. Armour stated
that he was president of the League
When Mr. Brown was Secretary
and that Mr. Brown had resigned
of his own accord to take: up another position. After 'alterations
the minutes were adopted. ':'
Reports were presented by the
councillors representing "different
departments of the League. Also
the Secretary's report' by Mr
Kelley. The retiring councillors
were accorded a hearty vote of
thanks for their labors during their
term of office.
Nominations were then taken for
new councillors. After nomination
the meeting was open for new
business. Mr. J. Blaney in a very
eloquent manner oalled for a vote
of confidence in the League Secretary, Mr. F. Mi Kelley a show of
hands was taken. No one counted
the vote-but it looked like 300 in
support of Mr. Kelley against 2.
Solemnly voting in the manner was
not sufficient for, the majority of
those present, they just had to
applaud and oheer by way of
emphasizing their approval of Mr.
Kelley as League Secretary.
Mr" Kelley acknowledged With a
bow and thanks. A discussion
followed concerning the. action of
the counoil or certain councillors
requesting Mr, Kelley for his
in
resignation. After both sides of
the question had been heard at
length it was decided that as
the meeting oould do no good in
continuing the disoussion and in
view of the vote of confidence in
Mr. Kelley whioh showed that he
had the support of the community
it was decided to let the matter
drop. A oommittee was appointed
to draft a new constitution.

An Appeal for Partially
Disabled Ex-Soldiers
A letter has been sent by
Attorney General A. M. Manson
to all employers of labor throughout the province, asking them to
provide employment when possible
for partly disabled veterans of the
late war, who are not capable of
doing hard manual work. We
feel sure that this appeal will not
fall on deaf ears. Men who left
our shores in full health amidst the
cheers of their fellow men, who
endured the torments of hell
"over there" for over three years,
and came back mained and crippled
are entitled to more than sympathy.
They are at least entitled to a
chance to earn a living, and they
should be given preference on
every class of work not entailing
great physical exertion. The
Attorney General's appeal comes
at an opportune time when butside
i work is opening up throughout the
province and it is hoped that his
plea for the returned veteran, who
were partially disabled in the
late war will not be in vain.
Following is part, of the letter
sent by the Attorney General to
employers of labor. Owing to
lack of space we were not able to
publish it in full. ,
Gentlemen:
"It is my duty to desire to bring
to your notice the present situation
of a most deserving class of our
fellow-citizens. I refer to the large
number of men in our midst who
are disabled through active services
in the war, and who are at the
present time without employment
or adequate means of support-
Recent inquiries made by the
Department of Labor have revealed
the fact that there are between 800
and 1,000 such men in this plight
in the province. They remind us
of a duty which we cannot ignore.
Many of them, before the war,
were apparently assured of safe
positions in the professions, iii
commerce, or in industry, and of
every comfort for the rest of their
days. They put these things
behind them. They made the
sacrifice—a sacrifice known to
all—I need not dwell upon it. They
have come back to us, maimed in
body and broken in health, desiring
nothing so much as a new start in
life.
Many of these men find it impossible, in view of the handicaps
from which they suffer, to look for
a return of the same measure of
prosperity which they formerly
enjoyed; But they do ask to be
allowed to serve the community in
such a way as their strength and
opportunity will permit.
So far as the Government of the
Province is concerned it has been
the constant aim to take into Civil
Services as many returned men as
could be placed, More than 80 per
cent, of the men who have been
added to the Service during the
past four years, by appointment
and reinstatement, have been
returned soldiers. Of these about
40 per, cent, have disabilities,
among whom are included over
twenty amputation cases. The
Government, while it has thus been
able to accomplish much, is limitecl
in this direction, and will therefore
welcome any similar consideration
by, employers in our various industries. Many firms have shown
themselves fully alive to the importance of doing what they can.
Many have not even given the
matter a thought: There is not a
firm in British Columbia that does
not owe these men a greater debt
by far than jt ever owed the bank
or can owe. ' ,        .'1
• I therefore appeal to all employers of labor, both large and small,
to take the claims of these men
earnestly into consideration.- There
are, no doubt, many tasks which
cannot be performed by men
suffering from physical disability.
But I believe it to be possible for
many employers, who have numerous men in their service, so to
distribute the work of their
industrial concorns as to reserve a
few positions that can be filled by
partly disabled ex-soldiers. In the
proper niche most of these men can
give full efficiency—but eaoh must
be in the proper niche. United
endeavour will find the appropriate
berth for every man. The large
industries of the province have not
by any means exhausted their
possibilities in the way of providing
work and a livelihood for this
class of men.-"

Vancouver Bond Market
Strong demand for long term bonds
continues, investors having wakened
up to the fact that the present interest
rotes will not last very long. Overnight money in London 1-2 of 1 per
cent, per annum, so that holders of
liquid funds have to loan $2,000,000 to
earn $25 a day, Such conditions point
to the necessity of holders of money or
short term bonds converting into long
term securities if they are to enjoy a
reasonable rate of interest in the next
decade. There never was so much
money for mortgage investment in
Vancouver as today, with good mortgage loans practically impossible to
get. It is a borrower's market, and
likely to remain so for some time.
There is a steady rise in the investment
stocks like American Telephone and
Telegraph (possibly the strongest concern on the continent), Canadian
Pacific, Union Pacific and Bell Telephone. These stocks at present prices
yield from 6 34 per cent, to 7 1-4 per
cent., but with easier money rates
prices should go much higher with
consequent lower yields. Western
Power of Canada 5 per cent, bonds
advanced to $88.75, and P. Burns &

That's why Cascade Beer has for 35 years

beverage. No expense has been spared to
ensure purity. It has cost a million dollars to build a plant to accomplish this.
